In order to show you just how powerful and easy SketchUp is, i.materialise got together with the Google SketchUp team to devise a Design Challenge that will test your product design and SketchUp skills to the limit. We've decided to let you make your very own 3D printed lamp. An actual lamp, unique, one of a kind, designed by you, complete with light and stand.
What can you win?
Can you design the most original SketchUp lamp? The top three designers will win and their own one of a kind lamp 3D printed by i.materialise! The lamps will come complete with design stand and light. On top of that, a free license for the brand spanking new Google SketchUp Pro 8 from Google will be given to the best designer.
The Google SketchUp & i.materialise teams will jointly judge the contest to try to find the most original 3D printed lamp. We will judge based on the following criteria:
- Is the lamp original?
- Is the lamp practical?
- Does the design make optimal use of 3D printing technology?
- Does the designer exhibit good SketchUp 3D modeling skills?
Out of all these criteria the most important is originality but please don't forget that we have to be able to make the lamp!
The design guidelines for the lamp, the fitting and the base can be found here. Should you get stuck you can always email contact (at) i.materialise.com and we will help you.
